FSA issues warning over insurance company

The Financial Services Authority has issued a consumer warning about Manchester-based insurance company Bridgewater House UK.

The regulator advises customers of the firm to contact the company to check valid insurance cover is still in place.

Customers whose insurance premiums were previously being paid by Bridgewater House UK have also been strongly advised to ensure payment for the insurance policy continues.

The FSA is concerned that life, critical illness or accident, sickness and unemployment policies taken out through Bridgewater House UK may lapse due to premiums not being passed to the insurer .

As a result the FSA is concerned that customers may not be aware that they may no longer have valid insurance cover in place.

Consumers wanting to contact the regulator about Bridgewater House UK should contact the FSA directly.
